Ive had these binos for about 6 months now and ive been using them in the backcountry of the White Mountains area of Arizona and have put then through a ton of stuff looking for elk and bears and they've performed flawlessly. Crazy clear and durable. Just today I conpared them side by side to some Vortex HD binos and these actually let more light in than the Vortex binos. Combine the awesome clarity with the lifetime warranty and the low price, and you've got an unbeatable pair of binos.
